Abstract: 

This is the first annual report of the Chief Public Health Officer and, as such, it represents a significant moment in public health in Canada. The intention of this report, and those in future, is to speak to aspects of health in the population, as well as to a specific issue or theme. It will serve to define some key public health issues of the day and consider how they can be approached. It is intended to inform Canadians and stimulate dialogue on the many factors that contribute to good health and what can be done individually and collectively to advance public health in Canada.
